About the Show

Tarek is a self-proclaimed real estate genius with determination and drive. Christina is Tarek's picture-perfect wife, who Tarek's friends still can't believe he landed. In each episode of Flip or Flop , Tarek and Christina flip a new property. From the nail-biting purchase at auction, to the frustrating renovations and maddening showings, to the giddy acceptance of an offer, we'll follow along as these two relatively novice flippers try their hand at the toughest game in town. From purchase to resale, weaving their personal lives within the story of the flip. From paying cash, sight unseen, for a property at auction, through the hapless remodeling process, to the frantic sale, this young couple is putting everything they have into this venture.

Awkward Floor Plan

Tarek and Christina snoop a foreclosure in Yorba Linda, CA. After casing the property and looking through the windows, they're confident the house is in good shape. So they head to bid on the house at a foreclosure auction. During a high-voltage bidding war, Tarek and Christina spend $393K on the property, which is more than they planned. Tarek and Christina want to flip this house in 30 days, so they walk through their house with their contractor, Dan Messina. It has a very awkward layout, with the master bedroom located between the front door and the kitchen. But much worse, one of the bedrooms turns out to be an unpermitted loft conversion! They thought they were buying a 4-bedroom house, but it's actually a 3-bedroom house! If they have to market this house as a 3-bedroom, they will actually LOSE money and will have to write a check to sell the house. Are Tarek and Christina going to Flip or Flop?

Spanish Style Salvage

Tarek and Christiana spot an intriguing listing for a curbside auction for a foreclosed 1920's Spanish style house in Santa Ana, CA. This is a unique opportunity to actually walk through the house, before the bidding starts. Although it needs a complete overhaul it has some charming original architecture still in place that will add to its value. They decide to bid on the property and win the house for $208K, a good price considering comps in the area go up to $325K. Their contractor meets them at the house and finds more issues than Tarek and Christina originally spotted in their walk through. There is some structural damage to the foundation and roof leaks that could be massive projects and additional costs. Tarek and Christina worry these structural issues might blow their entire rehab budget. Will this Spanish style salvage be a profitable flip or a regrettable flop?

Loud, Louder, Loudest

Christina receives an e-mail from an agent who has a listing in the South Bay neighborhood of Hawthorne.

It's a challenge, but this total renovation is the kind of project they love to take on. That is until work begins and a multitude of hidden problems rise to the surface. Will Tarek and Christina's high hopes fall on deaf ears, or can they overcome this home's loud, louder, and loudest problems to turn a profit?

Toxic Flip

Tarek and Christina get a lead on a small house that's aggressively priced and could be a lucrative deal based on comparable sales in the neighborhood.

They decide to take the calculated risk and buy the home, its interior still sight unseen. Can Tarek and Christina keep this project under control to see risk through to reward or could hidden troubles turn this house into a toxic flip?

Abandoned Flip

Tarek and Christina get a lead on a short sale property in Long Beach, California that looks like a promising investment project, save for one small issue: the massive renovations the previous owners began are only partly finished. With the house in various states of disrepair, Tarek and Christina are excited to have a clean slate for design but cautious about the problems that could be lurking in a homeowner's do-it-yourself renovation. Can Tarek and Christina bring this abandoned home out of renovation limbo or could their own rehab woes turn this project into an abandoned flip?

The Bungalow Gamble

Tarek and Christina get a lead on a bank-owned (REO) property that is a small 1920's craftsman bungalow in Whittier, CA. They are able to tour the house prior to making an offer, and discover it needs a complete overhaul. It may not be worth flipping. But there is a studio in the back that doesn't seem to be included in the square footage on the listing. If the studio is permitted, it would be a major selling point for potential owners, who might want to offset their mortgage with a renter. They check with the city and discover that it is in fact permitted. And the bank accepts their all cash offer of $182,000. They want to flip this house in 30 days so work begins right away. On Day 1 they discover that the lead paint on the house must be dealt with according to EPA standards at an unexpected cost of 12 thousand dollars! Day 2 and it's a broken water main, which once again destroys the budget! With their profit margin getting gouged, Tarek and Christina hold their breath to see if this bungalow gamble will Flip or Flop.

Cracked Flip

Tarek and Christina come across a listing for a newer home in Yorba Linda, California that has great potential but has seen better days. The owner is motivated to sell quickly which could yield an enticing deal; but it also means Tarek and Christina won't have much time to inspect if they want to wrap up this investment property. The home is newer and will require mostly cosmetic fixes, but a series of cracks inside and outside have piqued Tarek and Christina's interest. Can they handle the problems hidden throughout this house or will they crack up before they can finish this cracked flip?

A Flip With A View

Tarek and Christina decide to go big and invest in a Real Estate Owned, or banked owned, high-end hilltop home with a gorgeous view. They check their bank statements and realize that even after maxing out their credit cards, the only way they can cover the costs of rehab is to get Tarek's mother to invest by taking out a loan against her home equity. So, if they lose on this house, it will affect the whole family. Banking on the home's beautiful view, Tarek and Christina spend 20 thousand of their $50,000 rehab budget on landscaping, however, after they notice a crack in the foundation slab of the house, they realize that the home might be sinking down the hill along with their profits! With literally everything, and then some, invested, will this flip with a view have Tarek and his family sitting pretty, or tumbling down the hill towards bankruptcy?

Convinced that there's a profit to be made here despite the numerous challenges, Tarek and Christina punch their dance card and purchase the property.

Foreclosure Shock

With no foreclosures to flip in Orange County, Tarek and Christina broaden their search to include Los Angeles County and find a house with a view that looks promising. The only problem is that the home is too far away for them to look at it before they go to the auction, so they'll have to bid on the property sight unseen. After placing the winning bid, they meet their contractor at the house for a design walkthrough. But listing photos aren't always what they appear, and the divide between initial perception and present reality has left Tarek and Christina in total foreclosure shock.

Breaking Up

Tarek and Christina get a lead on a house in Torrance, California that is not only in rough shape, but also has known foundation issues. Right away it seems like this might be a bad buy; but Torrance is an exploding market and the land value alone could make this flip worth the risk. The house is going to need it all: good design, structural improvement, and careful renovation. It's a big project but it has the potential to be a big profit. Can Tarek and Christina transform this down and out home or could significant problems leave their budget and their profit margin on the verge of breaking up?

Pipe Dreams

Tarek and Christina come across a For Sale By Owner property in Garden Grove, California. This type of sale is always exciting for a flipper because it means no real estate agent commissions and an opportunity to negotiate a fair sale price. The house is in good shape and looks to need only cosmetic repairs and improvements. But in the business of flipping, one can rarely judge an old house by its finishes and it is truly what's on the inside that counts. Can Tarek and Christina deal with the hidden problems of an old house or will their hopes of a fast and easy flip turn out to be nothing but pipe dreams?
